When I travel to old European cities, I always look for a well preserved period movie house. Seriously. I have not been let down yet and the Tuschinski tops them all. It's a cheap way to enjoy some beautiful architecture for a few hours, and in the case of this theater, see a movie and drink beer from a glass.... More

Saw a poster for a movie we wanted to see outside the building, it was a cold so we went in. Wow! Didnt know the cinema would look so amazing on the inside. The staff told us that you can go on an arranged tour, which would be worth doing if you have the time.

I visited the Tuschinski Theater this year October to attend a conference. What a nice place to host a conference!!! Location: The threatre is right in the middle of everything. You have many restaurants, hotels and clubs around. If you want to get some experience of smoke, it is also a block way. Everything nearby is classy rather than cheesy.... More

Tuschinski Theater is the oldest cinema in Amsterdam and a extraordinary architectural display for anyone who has interest in historical buildings and architecture. The building is situated along Reguliersbreestraat in the city centre between Muntplein and Rembrandtplein We didn't catch a movie here but very much enjoyed viewing the eclectic and playful exterior of the theatre building, which is an...

This is a fantastic place to see a movie. The theater is about 100 years old and it's nice to see a high res movie in Dolby digital in a place like this.

This beautiful cinema is definitely worth a visit. The walls are elaborately painted, there are gorgeous lights and a great ambience. See a movie in room one to experience the original theatre. The first balcony is best for views and a drink and snack are thrown in with the price. Great night at the movies!
